Cords and textile braids

Our core business is trimmings, the manufacture of braids and narrow textiles by braiding, for finishing in clothing, decoration or packaging.

From our braiding workshop, we create custom cord and textile braid, but also a wide variety of laces, croquets, soutaches, elastics, mats and rick racks, adapted to all the needs of our customers, of different widths and diameters.

Depending on the objective, we use natural (linen, cotton) or synthetic (polyester, polyamide…) yarns, many of which are available in recycled form, for the manufacture of textile braids and customized cords.
